Optimizing Java (O'Reilly)
Monday, 11 June 2018

This book, subtitled Practical Techniques for Improving JVM Application Performance, is aimed at intermediate to advanced Java technologists working with complex technology stacks. Authors Ben Evans, Jim Gough, and Chris Newland show how to tune Java applications for performance using a quantitative, verifiable approach. Most resources on performance tend to discuss the theory and internals of Java virtual machines, but this book focuses on the practicalities of performance tuning by examining a wide range of aspects.

<ASIN:1492025798>

There are no simple recipes, tips and tricks, or algorithms to learn.  The message is that performance tuning is a process of defining and determining desired outcomes; and it requires diligence.
